I have a 3 year old female spayed poodle who is suddenly afraid to go outside! She is such a sweet and good girl that she won't even go in the house, she will hold it!
We think she may have hurt or back or hip a week ago when she was outside playing and after that she has been at the Vet's every day. She held for so long that she became constipated and got a UTI so she's been treated for that and it still on pain medication and a steroid. The poor thing is miserable and I don't know what to do for her.
I've tried just sitting outside with her in my lap, offering her favorite treats, leaving her inside and going out without her, walking her on a leash, offering toys. She has always been a happy, sweet girl and I am at my wits end with what to do for her.
Any ideas are really appreciated!
